laptop crashed last night-

screen showed:


screen giving me the option of safe mode-

safe mode with network something

safe mode with command prompt-

back to previous configs

run windows normally



tried all options and kept booting up to the above--



I've used the recovery disk twice (toshiba) and it still does the same thing-

showing:

option of safe mode-

safe mode with network something

safe mode with command prompt-

back to previous configs

run windows normally


would booting up with a copy of ms windows possibly work or should I give up and let someone look at it-


any help would be appreciated-

So can you even boot to the Windows desktop? This might be a last resort for you but have you thought about a clean slate with a reformat?

that's basically what the toshiba recovery disk is- a reformat-

I've used it before a couple times (my keeper stuff is on my desktop and backed up)-

I lose everything except what was on it when I bought it-

(and I would be very happy with that)-

thanks
george
